Best of Food & Cooking 2016 — photo 1 of 50: A nicely-grilled lamb burger patty was set on a crunchy but tender bun, and topped with plenty of creamy goat cheese and sautéed sweet red chili peppers. On top of a huge leaf of lettuce were some rings of raw onion — which appeared to have been tinted purple with beet juice — and a picked green chili pepper. The burger came with golden fries served with two sauces: ketchup, and a marvelous red chili pepper (the same as on the burger?) aioli. All of the vivid, complementary colors were a feast for the eyes (and camera!), not to mention the actual eating of it. All of this was washed down with an award-winning, refreshing Hopworks Urban Brewery Organic Lager Northwest Pilsner, at The Observatory, in the Montavilla neighborhood of eastern Portland, Oregon. March 2016. Camera used: Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50.
